It also features 4 large fully-knobbed pneumatic tires as well as rear suspension that intelligently follows any terrain. The classic bucket seat of old is also a mainstay in this particular ride-on toy complete with safety shoulder and lap harness to keep your child in his or her seat. Acceleration is controlled by a thumb-triggered device opposite a hand-operated disc brake located to the rear of the Dune Buggy; pretty much what you would expect from a classic bicycle setup. Storage is a breeze as the Buggy can be flipped on its rear end to allow for instant vertical or standing storage. Its tubular steel frame construction simply means the Dune Buggy can take anything thrown at its way. It can support children and some adults whose weight don’t exceed 120 pounds.
In 1998, Fisher-Price undertook a monumental recall of up to 10 million Power Wheels 12 volt and Super 6 volt vehicles manufactured since 1986. The recall and repair program was conducted to replace battery fuses and strengthen battery connectors in order to prevent the units from overheating. The main difference of a post recall Power Wheel is that the original "H" (or on very early Power Wheels, "S") connectors are removed and replaced with the larger, black "A" connectors. If a Power Wheels ride-on was built in or before 1998 and has the Black "A" connectors, then the recall work has probably been performed.
I perched this car for my daughter who is 2. She loves it. It's really fun for her and I can drive her around. I have also had my niece who is 10 months in it and she loved it also. The reasons I gave it a four star is because it is very jerky and if I use the RC to drive my daughter around she can still steer the car and because of her age she drives into things if I don't stop the car completely. Overall it's a great purchase for a younger child.

A great and awesome "toy" to have for my daughter! My daughter is like a celebrity riding this at the mall! My only problem is that 2nd gear speed is quite dangerously speedy! My little one will be hitting her head to the steering wheel and dangerously stop like she gonna break her neck (and might get a whiplash or something) because it abruptly stops! They should have made this to change slowly like from slow-medium-going fast if use the 2nd gear selection.... Other than that its a cool thing but be careful using this! I also love the fact that it is remote controlled and/or can be manually driven by my daughter when she is old enough. It may be a little pricey but I tell you, it pays off in the long run. This is something that my daughter can use until her pre-teen! I would definitely recommend this as a birthday girt to my friend's little girls! They will have a blast!
So while my kids & I have a blast with it, I still have mixed feelings because we so rarely use it. And they don't really ask for it either. It's a pain to pull out, a pain to store it, and a pain to keep charged up. I have an oversized lot (huge yard, fairly flat), yet it's not even enough, and it's frustrating for everyone as the Jeep gets stuck on a stick or a clump of grass. We have a blast taking it to the neighborhood playground, but loading it up is a chore (I have to take the rear seat out of the minivan in order to transport it). I have a feeling for many people, this is like the exercise machines that get used once or twice then get forgotten.
Just perfect for a single child looking to ride around in style. This ride on car can be operated either by the driver in the car by pressing the pedal or by remote control. It is great for both experienced riders and new to the electric car game. It offers a spring suspension, great traction with 14 inch wheels, and fun features on the exterior that make it look just like the real thing. The body has been constructed from a non-toxic plastic and has a working seat belt, gear shifter, doors that magnetically close and LED lights. There are three speed options; low, medium, and high plus it even has a built-in radio. The radio can play tunes from the local stations or plug in their own playlist with the AUX cable. The weight capacity is 65 pounds and has a rechargeable battery that is included. Get ready to have some fun in the park or back yard with this one.
The Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler from Fisher-Price promotes a basic understanding of cause & effect as kids learn how to power the vehicle and make it go forward, back, steer, stop and start it up again. This easy-to-drive 4-wheeler helps build gross motor skills as kids cruise around the yard, on the sidewalk, or down the driveway – and stop safely when they take their foot off the pedal. Beginners start at a fun but safe 2.5 mph in forward and reverse – and when they’re ready, adults can move them up to 5 mph in the forward direction by removing the high speed lock-out.
